4 StarsA View of St. Petersburg Russia from the waterJuly 02, 2019

Reviewer: jldsmd
We were picked up at our Ships Port on a coach bus. The english speaking guide gave a great talk on the 30 min drive to the dock about places we were passing and on Russia itself. We boarded the boat on the canal with our same guide and took a 1 hour tour on the water, it was a great way to see St. Petersburg from the water. All the different bridges we went under were very interesting. We are so glad we took this tour. Once the boat ride ended our bus was at the dock waiting and took us right back to our ship at port. Would highly recommend this tour

Reviewer: Steve Harris
The River Cruise was pretty well done and it was a small private boat so everyone had good views and it wasn't overcrowded. The Cruise started on time and was informative. The city from the water at sunset was beautiful.

Excellent. St Petersburg at night with all the monuments lighted up is so beautiful. I really enjoyed the tour even though I twisted my ankle when stepping out of the bus.

Our guide was excellent and to see St. Petersburg by night was absolutely amazing. As always Shore Excursions can be counted on to do a first class job!

The pick up and drop off were excellent. The guide was very good but it was such a shame that a group of guests were not very polite. They continued to talk over the guide constantly to the point I had to make an exit outside, I therefore missed what he was saying. The city was fabulous at night and this cruise was just what we needed after a hectic day. It was sit on the ship and watch a show or get a few more hours in a beautiful city !
